  1. http://forums.aaca.org/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/483077/gonew/1#UNREAD Maybe this will help. Ed
  2. Well, nothing else showed up but the Bugle came today! Ed
  3. Thanks guys! I appreciate it. I hope to build a model with correct paint scheme etc. Ed
  4. I have a picture of my grandfather with his truck. He worked for New England Transportation (the trucking branch of the New York-New Haven Railroad). What kind of truck is he leaning against? Ed
  5. I've got to say not buying the 73 Cutlass Supreme with a factory 4 speed. Man, that car drove great. And there was the 22,000 mile 340 Duster and the 58 Chevy-a solid original car except for a repaint. Ed
  6. Thanks for the question. I have been contemplating the same thing on my 40. I really appreciate the info. Ed
  7. Thanks! Post Office issues. I'm missing bills, a letter of reference, a letter from my attorney and, most importantly, The Bugle. UGH! Ed
  8. Still haven't gotten mine(trouble with mail delivery). What's on the cover? Ed
  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: norb</div><div class="ubbcode-body">How does a car know what the air pr. is in every tire ? </div></div> Cause the computer doesn't hear ker-thunk, ker-thunk as you drive along! My wife has an 06 and she loves it. My head brushes the ceiling because it has the factory sunfroof but it does drive nicely. Which engine did you get? She has the 3.8 and she is very happy with it. Enjoy. Ed
  10. I'm not so sure just based on the description from the Shop Manual "Tools supplied with the car consist of screwdriver, pliers, car jack and wheel wrench." The hammer that came with my car is a touch too long to fit the bag. Of course, I don't know that the bag is OEM but... By the way, what kind of 1941 Buick do you have? Ed
  11. Interesting stuff. It just occured to me that I have a box of stuff that came with the car. I think it is in the attic. Maybe the screwdriver is there. Especially now that I have an idea what it looks like. Ed
  12. Okay, I think this will help. According to the 1929-1941 Buick Master Parts List, the tool kit for 1939-1941 are all the same (part number 1314665). My 1940 Model 41 came with a cloth bag with pliers and a ball-peen hammer in it. The hammer is not original. According to the 1940 Buick Shop Manual; "Tools supplied with car consist of screwdriver, pliers, car jack and wheel wrench." There are no markings on anything except for "Drop Forged" on the pliers. Ed
  13. and a moderator decides that it didn't...what happened? Ed
  14. Nice looking car. I don't think that I ever saw a Lincoln without fender skirts. I take it that they were optional. Ed
  15. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Tarheel</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WFCB are the initials for "White Cast Four Barrel", a very common Carter carburetor- if you need one you would know ;^) </div></div> I didn't know the "White Cast" part. I had always thought it was "Water Cooled Four Barrel" but that was just the follow up to the on the WCD "Water Cooled" two barrel. I never worked with one so I'm not really familiar. Ed
  16. If you're still out there- these are also in the Bob's Automobilia catalog part #CN-463 Ed
  17. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Skyking</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Am I the only guy that does this alone?? ......... </div></div> Nope. My wife will help if I ask for it,but, other than that, it is my hobby. That's OK. Her hobby is quilting. Ed
  18. I found these on Ebay tonight. Hope it helps. Ed http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1936-1937...sspagenameZWDVW
  19. Good stuff! I dropped off the radio from my 40 Buick today to get it rebuilt. I was told that I would be able to drive with a radio in two to three weeks! Right! We've had an almost record setting snowfall this December (off by less than an inch). Ed
  20. Jaxops, It <span style="font-style: italic">is</span> a bargain then. At today's gold price, $80,200 would buy about 6 pounds. It must be the expense of reclaimation process Ed
  21. I hadn't even noticed the weights but you are right. They really stick out. What I noticed was the finish on the front crossmember-pitted and some rust peeking out of the access hole. Ed
  22. I'm not really sure where to post this so please relocate as needed. I came across this on ebay today. Kind of makes the anything that I want look like a bargain! I don't know what blows my mind more; the price or the fact that the reserve has not been met. Ed http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140193245710
  23. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Peter Gariepy</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Worth considering? </div></div> Worth considering? Sorry, no. There are enough pieces of info floating around in cyberspace with my name attached to them. I don't wish to add another. Given current tendencies to "Google" your name when applying for a job, submitting an application, joining a club, etc, I would prefer to be able to control (and more importantly, limit) what information is available. But, as you say, you are currently offering us a choice. Ed
